Dietrich, Thomas K.
Thomas Karl Dietrich (1948-2017) was born in Germany but now lives in the USA. In his 2005 book, The Origin of Culture, based on forty years of research, he locates the ‘original’ Atlantis in America and identifies Morocco as one of its principal colonies. He contends that from Morocco, Atlantean culture first spread to Ireland and afterwards to Libya and Egypt. His book contains an overwhelming number of references to support his thesis and he is currently working on a follow-up book. He also promotes the book with a website(a).
He believes that Culture and Science spread through the Mediterranean from the west (Morocco) and that Civilisation (urbanisation) spread from the west.
In 2011 he published The Culture of Astronomy, which has the explanatory subtitle of “Origin of Number, Geometry, Science, Law, and Religion.” There is a full YouTube lecture by Dietrich related to this book(b).
A critical review of Dietrich’s book should also be considered (c).
